The Preacher and the Bear Poem Title

The preacher he went a-ridin
On one Saturday morn
According to this tale as told,
He started out in the corn.
He scared up one dozen partridges,
On a morning which was so fair
He got down the road a little further
And spied a big grizzly bear.

Well the bear stood up
and that horse did buck
The preacher dropped to his knees
He got so excited
that he climbed up in the trees!
The parson stayed up in that tree,
I think it was all night
Then he cast his eyes up to the Lord
And he prayed with all his might:

"Oh Lord, didn't you deliver Daniel
From the lion's den?
Also brother Jonah
From the belly of the whale,
And didn't you save multitudes from starving
With a fish and a loaf of bread?
Oh Lord, please my life do spare!
But Lord, if you can't help me...
Please don't help that bear!"
